LAWA Environmental Overview


Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) offers an award winning, multi-faceted rideshare program that benefits employees, tenants, the community and the environment. The program's immense success reduces traffic congestion and pollution, supports local South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) air quality goals, and provides employees with the many benefits of ridesharing. The goal of LAWA Rideshare is to reduce vehicle trips to our airports by providing top level transportation benefits to LAWA employees, while also improving transportation options for LAX tenant company employees and the local community. 

The LAWA Rideshare Program began in 1990 with the purchase of 4 vans for employees to use as vanpool vehicles, LAWA now has 70 vanpools and over 500 vanpoolers as well as over 200 transit riders and over 85 carpool program participants.  According to a 2012 study by the National Academy of Sciences, this voluntary program is now the largest and most comprehensive airport employee rideshare program in the nation.  LAWA Rideshare was an inaugural member of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA's) Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) Program - a mark of excellence in environmental leadership. LAWA continues to qualify for BWC designation each year through its innovative and effective rideshare programs.
